Big attractions. Small crowds.

Ambergris Caye

Ambergris Caye is Belize's largest island at approximately 36 miles. Located next to the largest barrier reef in the western hemisphere. It’s safe to say that Ambergris Caye has some big attractions, but if that’s not your thing, there are plenty of smaller things to do.

From cobblestone streets of bustling San Pedro outward to the northern and southern ends of the island, there is a wide assortment of accommodations, restaurants, bars, shops and tour operators to suit all budgets. Take little naps on the beach or make small talk with the locals. In Ambergris Caye, going big or small is up to you.
